I’d call mock drafts a guilty pleasure, but I don’t feel guilty at all about reading them.
Are they essentially meaningless? Definitely. A single trade renders the whole thing kind of pointless, and even the best mock drafters (if there even is such a thing?) rarely do well beyond the top handful of picks or so.
But they’re also harmless, and everybody who makes them seems to be in on the joke. You do run into the random person who gets VERY MAD when an entirely made up exercise doesn’t go the way they imagined it would, but that’s no different than someone who yells at a comic book movie when someone’s costume looks a little bit different on the screen than the page.
It’s all pretend! Let’s just pretend together. Enjoy mock draft season.
The Bears are busy on draft day here. Three trades involving an NFC North opponent would be interesting!

How will these coaching moves shake out?
The talking heads have said a lot, but Rodgers points out that nobody actually has a source that knows what he’s going to do. Props for the Ted Thompson approach.
Where does Andy Reid rank all time?
This couple also has a 10-month-old infant already, giving them a grand total of six kids under the age of one. Thoughts and prayers all around.
